So I have been sewing like crazy. It's so quick to finish projects compared to other crafts!

I whipped up this shell from some knit fabric leftover from the dress I made last week. I just traced a well-fitting tee. It's fairly tight, I plan on wearing it under a cardigan or blazer. I probably won't be wearing it with the corduroy skirt...the skirt is more casual than the top I think, but I liked how the colors happened to go together. The skirt is also made from leftover fabric--I've had it so long I don't even remember what I originally bought it for! It's a pretty thin corduroy and has some stretch, so the skirt is just two trapezoids sewn together with an elastic waist.

This skirt is a tiered ruffle skirt. It's four tiers long, each six inches tall before seaming. The top tier is my hip measurement + 2 inches with an elastic waist. The second tier is 48 inches wide, gathered to fit to the top tier. The third tier is 72 inches, and the fourth tier is 96 inches. It's a very poofy skirt but I like it!

They look good, lovely fit once again.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.
